Test equipment: Vacuum Interrupters Inc., an affiliate of Group CBS, has developed the VITS60M vacuum interrupter testing device that performs three test sets for the price of one.

Unlike other vacuum integrity test sets on the market today, the VITS60M not only performs standard go/no-go tests on vacuum interrupters but also includes a 2.5/5/10 kV megohmmeter for Insulation Resistance testing with automated Polarity Index and Absorption Ratio testing routines. Additionally, the VITS60M can serve as a standalone 60 kV DC high-potential (HiPot) test set for most types of insulation testing.

This simple-to-operate set walks technicians through setup, generating a visual go/no-go result for testing the vacuum integrity of vacuum interrupters and the dielectric strength of various vacuum breaker components during regular maintenance while offering fully programmable leakage current thresholds and test durations.

VITS60M features and benefits include:
• Safety features with auto discharging, interlock, and safety control button
• 2.5/5/10 kV standard line-powered megohmmeter
• Integrity test, Insulation Resistance test, Absorption Ratio test, and Polarity Index test all in one — lower price, more functions
• Tough dual-case design
• Operates in 1 kV DC increments
• CE certified
• Lightweight
• Failure indicator LED makes it easy to interpret results (green light: pass; red light: fail)
• Available with optional 5-year warranty with loaner service included. Never be down more than a day.
